On Instagram, Cruz shared her birthday message for her daughter as she posted snaps of her.
“We may not agree with a lot of things because we are opposites in so many ways but disagreeing with you will never make me love you less. You know how much I care for you that I want to protect you all the time. I am always here for you Chesca. Have a blast (with us) later. Mahal na mahal kita!” Cruz wrote.
Actor Diego Loyzaga, Montano’s son with Teresa Loyzaga, also greeted his sister a happy birthday.
Montano and Cruz were married in 2000. In May 2014, Cruz petitioned for the annulment, a year after she separated from the 56-year-old actor following allegations of infidelity.
In September 2018, their marriage was officially nullified.
